Deoxyribonuclease II, lysosomal

acid DNase, DNASE2, DNase IIalpha, Deoxyribonuclease IIalpha
This gene encodes a member of the DNase family. The protein, located in the lysosome, hydrolyzes DNA under acidic conditions and mediates the breakdown of DNA during erythropoiesis and apoptosis. Two codominant alleles have been characterized, DNASE2*L (low activity) and DNASE2*H (high activity), that differ at one nucleotide in the promoter region. The DNASE2*H allele is represented in this record. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Seven nonsynonymous SNPs in the gene encoding human deoxyribonuclease II may serve as a functional SNP potentially implicated in autoimmune dysfunction.
Yasuda et al., Japan. In Electrophoresis, 2013
Many nonsynonymous SNPs in the human DNase II gene (DNASE2), potentially relevant to autoimmunity in conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, have been identified, but only limited population data are available and no studies have evaluated whether such SNPs are functional.
Safeguarding Stem Cell-Based Regenerative Therapy against Iatrogenic Cancerogenesis: Transgenic Expression of DNASE1, DNASE1L3, DNASE2, DFFB Controlled By POLA1 Promoter in Proliferating and Directed Differentiation Resisting Human Autologous Pluripotent Induced Stem Cells Leads to their Death.
Malecki et al., San Francisco, United States. In J Stem Cell Res Ther, 2013
SPECIFIC AIM: The specific aim was threefold: (1) to genetically engineer the DNA constructs for the human, recombinant DNASE1, DNASE1L3, DNASE2, DFFB controlled by POLA promoter; (2) to bioengineer anti-SSEA-4 antibody guided vectors delivering transgenes to human undifferentiated and proliferating pluripotent stem cells; (3) to cause death of proliferating and directed differentiation resisting stem cells by transgenic expression of the human recombinant the DNases (hrDNases).
Eradication of Human Ovarian Cancer Cells by Transgenic Expression of Recombinant DNASE1, DNASE1L3, DNASE2, and DFFB Controlled by EGFR Promoter: Novel Strategy for Targeted Therapy of Cancer.
Malecki et al., San Francisco, United States. In J Genet Syndr Gene Ther, 2013
SPECIFIC AIM: The specific aim of this project was threefold: (1) to bioengineer suicide genes' carrying vectors guided by synthetic antibodies for EGFRvIII and EGFR; (2) to genetically engineer DNA constructs for the human, recombinant DNASE1, DNASE1L3, DNASE2, and DFFB controlled by the EGFR promoter; (3) to selectively eradicate ovarian cancer cells by intranuclear targeting of the transgenically expressed recombinant DNases.

Radisavljevic et al., In Hepatogastroenterology, 2013
BACKGROUND/AIMS: The study examines the relationship between activity of acid DNase and 5'nucleotidase (5'NT) and histological changes in reflux esophagitis.
Distribution and haplotype analysis of all the non-synonymous and autoimmunity-related single nucleotide polymorphisms in the human deoxyribonuclease II gene using worldwide populations.
Takeshita et al., Izumo, Japan. In Leg Med (tokyo), 2013
We have focused on the 14 SNPs including all the non-synonymous and autoimmunity-related ones in the DNase II gene (DNASE2).
Melatonin protects rat thymus against oxidative stress caused by exposure to microwaves and modulates proliferation/apoptosis of thymocytes.
Krstic et al., Niš, Serbia. In Gen Physiol Biophys, 2013
Both, alkaline and acid DNase activity were increased due to microwave exposure.
Genetic and expression analysis of SNPs in the human deoxyribonuclease II: SNPs in the promoter region reduce its in vivo activity through decreased promoter activity.
Takeshita et al., Izumo, Japan. In Electrophoresis, 2012
These findings indicate these three SNPs could alter the promoter activity of DNASE2, leading to a decline in DNase II activity in the serum through gene expression.
The glucocorticoid dexamethasone programs human dendritic cells for enhanced phagocytosis of apoptotic neutrophils and inflammatory response.
Fésüs et al., Debrecen, Hungary. In J Leukoc Biol, 2012
This gene expression pattern was reprogrammed when differentiation took place in the presence of the synthetic GC Dex, which increased the expression of phagocytosis receptors MERTK and CD14, the bridging molecule C1QA, DNASE2, and ADORA3.
Age-related retention of fiber cell nuclei and nuclear fragments in the lens cortices of multiple species.
Wolf et al., Seattle, United States. In Mol Vis, 2010
MRNA content in young versus old C57BL/6 mouse lenses was determined by quantitative PCR (qPCR) for DNase II-like acid DNase (DLAD) and other proteins.
DNase 2 is the main DNA-degrading enzyme of the stratum corneum.
Eckhart et al., Vienna, Austria. In Plos One, 2010
Moreover, the genetic ablation of DNase 2a in the mouse was associated with the lack of acid DNase activity in the stratum corneum in vivo.
Homozygosity for DNASE2 single nucleotide polymorphisms in the 5'-regulatory region is associated with rheumatoid arthritis.
Wagner et al., Leipzig, Germany. In Ann Rheum Dis, 2009
The association of SNPs in the 5'-regulatory region of the DNA degrading enzyme DNASE2 with Rheumatoid Arthritis implies a role for this enzyme in the pathogenesis of this autoimmune disease.
Regulation of poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase-1 functions by leukocyte elastase inhibitor/LEI-derived DNase II during caspase-independent apoptosis.
Torriglia et al., Paris, France. In Int J Biochem Cell Biol, 2009
Here we show that in the long-term cultured HeLa cells which undergo caspase-independent death, PARP-1 co-immunoprecipitates with leukocyte elastase inhibitor-derived DNase II (L-DNase II), an acid DNase implicated in this death pathway and activated by serine proteases.
Negative association of the chemokine receptor CCR5 d32 polymorphism with systemic inflammatory response, extra-articular symptoms and joint erosion in rheumatoid arthritis.
Wagner et al., Leipzig, Germany. In Arthritis Res Ther, 2008
Intriguingly, homozygosity for the RA associated DNASE2 -1066 G allele had an additive effect on the disease susceptibility conferred by the wt allele of CCR5 (OR = 2.24, P = 0.0051 for carrier of both RA associated alleles) CONCLUSIONS: The presence of CCR5d32 significantly influenced disease susceptibility to and clinical course of RA in a German study population.
